RIVERSIDE
Progressive Rock/Progressive Metal
Formed/Founded: 2001


Here's a band that I've been into on and off. They've showed up in my collection from time to time but I never fully got into them until recently. They've got a genuine sound that I absolutely love. Not much else I can really say. The music can do the talking.

Absolutely amazing band. I found them when I bought Porcupine Tree - Fear of a Blank Planet cd and the seller recommended me Rapid Eye Movement album.

Re: Riverside: Progressive Rock/Progressive Metal

One of the best prog bands from the last 10 years IMO and one of my favs from the "modern" prog era. Heavy prog with progressive metal leanings. All of thier full length studio albums I rate 8 or 9/10. Waiting on thier new EP.

The bassist/vocalist and keyboardist from Riverside with a member from Indukti, another Polish band with an instrumental post rock/experimental/prog sound teamed up and formed Lunatic Soul and have released two great albums. More of psych/space/prog formula similar to the early phase of Porcupine Tree.

Riverside has thier own unique sound and formula that doesn't fall in the typical prog/metal pigeon hole. Brilliant band.

I was ultimately impressed when I heard these guys for the first time. I am currently in the process of getting each album they've released. I really like their sound.

AK told me about them when he wrote a review for a festival he attended last year so I checked them out. I have two of their albums now, haven't played them in ages...sigh never enough time anymore.

Re: Riverside: Progressive Rock/Progressive Metal

Hey dude, I was just sampling these guys! Apparently they have a new EP out! Some of it reminds me of Tool but more purely progressive than they are! :grinthumb Here's one of the tracks which is pretty good! :)
